Park & wildlife safety
Wollaton Park is a large park home to a variety of wildlife, including two herds of wild deer, 90 Red and 120 Fallow. Please be aware of seasonal activity, such as deer rutting (September – November), calving (May – July) and times of the year when invertebrates may sting or bite in open spaces, such as wasps, ticks and horse-flies.
For safety keep aware of nature:
Remain close to paths and avoid long grassy areas.
Wear comfortable clothing & footwear at all times as the park can be muddy, particularly during rainy or icy weather and changeable seasons.
Keep a safe distance from the deer
Keep dogs on leads throughout the park. Owners of dogs worrying the deer may receive a fine of up to £1,000.
BBQs & fires are not permitted in the park, as they pose a danger to the wild deer and other wildlife.
Take litter home where possible.
Drones are not permitted except, see more about our drone policy below.
No swimming or fishing in the lake
